This paper introduces a novel analytical model for analyzing the performance of handoff algorithms based on absolute and relative signal strength measurements. The performance is analyzed in multicell and multisector environments where cochannel interference (CCI) is present. The model presented in this paper accounts for the distinct features of intersector handoff compared with intercell handoff. Numerical results show that the performance metrics are affected by the CCI level. The occurrence condition of unnecessary handoffs in multisector systems is also presented.
